Very good show. Nice crispy sound too. Every once in awhile I go back and look at my old reviews to make sure I was fair. I relistened to a show the other day and went back to see if I still feel the same about it. Somebody had posted a review bashing me for giving a '90's show four stars when I had given one from the late '70's three stars. That's like comparing apples and oranges. I rate shows against the same year or era. A big part of my review has to do with sound quality. I mean I might find a show wonderful when somone else doesn't. Thats the way life is. I don't expect everyone to like everything I like. Some people are just closed minded and petty I guess.

Grimey posted, "...But when they came out 2nd set my friends thought it was Man Smart with BOBBY on Lead Vocals..But when JERRY came up and sang HEY NOW..HEY NOW..IKO IKO....ILL NEVER FORGET THAT NIGHT.....GRIMEY"

And that my Grimey friend is what the Grateful Dead really were all about ! Cheers !

Subject: Eternity
There are not to many dead songs I dont Like but Eternity is one of them.It seems to last for an Eternity.Most of you will hate me if I tell you the other two songs I dont like,cuz most Heads love them.This is still a Good show and the sound is pretty good so I will give it a 4 for that and a 4 for performance

Subject: Rocking the Rosemont: solid show from '94
Another good show from this much maligned year. Solid playing from everybody involved. Jerry has that Lightning bolt acoustic like sound going for much of the show and he's wailing too. Though on Playing I think a more electric tone with greater sustain would have worked better, but what are you gonna do? Vince too plays really well and is finally fully integrated into the Dead's sound ('bout time too);-) Bobby too is playing well and is in good voice. His electric tone makes a really nice contrast to Jerry's more acoustic one. Phil once again is barely audible though, damn it all. That's a problem that seems to plague these early '94 boards, just gotta use a little eq (well a lot really). As for the songs the Dew is fantastic, the Althea, Playing, Iko and UJB and subsequent jam are also excellent. Jerry lays out just at the end of the jam and Vince and Bobby do a really cool build that climaxes and fades nicely into drums. And what a remarkable drums and space. One of the best space segments I've ever heard, outstanding. As far as the set goes there's not a clunker in the bunch. A solid 4 star show for 1994, good sound, good set and good playing.

Subject: Rockin St. Paddy's Day
The Mornin Dew/Rain close turned an average show into a memorable show for me and my cohorts. Rumors had circulated that the Boys would bust out a St. Stephen for St. Patrick's day but Box was as close we got that day.

I am hoping the first night of this run at Rosemont makes it on to the Archive soon. The first night was epic -- GDTS gave us our first look at the Dead from the 10th row, center. So kind.

Super WoW! Jerry is in such fine voice. Thousand of hours of listening to the GD and I'm not convinced I have heard Jerry sound better. I think the firing of soundman Dan Healy before the 1994 Tour did wonders!! Jerry's voice is heavily compressed in 1993 and as a result, took away Jerry's subtle nuances.

Vince with terrific grand piano sound and also some organ throughout. Bobby supports with tasteful color and Phil digs deep.

The end of song climax is unlike any sort of music I have ever heard.

Check it out. (Bobby plays a horrible steel-drum/guitar dual-voice guitar sound that is so annoying during The Wheel!)

I was there, and I remember they were handing out little saint patricks day stickers. the highlights of the show for me were 1st set wang dang doodle (love that tune), and my all time favorite Jerry song The Wheel (2nd set)...WOW, this is one of the best Morning Dews I have heard (for this time period).

..I hate to correct anybody, but The First set of this night ended with Eternity, not Box Of Rain as Grimey states in his review. Box>Iko opened set 2.
